ahead in the face of strong opposition? >> well, kim jong-il was to preserve the nation's sovereignty. this included peaceful use of nuclear technology and space exploration. the north koreans insist this launch is such for peaceful use. on april 15th, in his first speech after the last-minute launch, kim jong-un said peace is precious but that the dignity of the people under sovereignty of the nation are even more precious. he indicated his intention to follow his father's footsteps and this launch is seen as part of that, i think. >> so why did the north koreans choose to launch now? >> well, experts point to two reasons. and the one is that the timing relates to a scheduled satellite launch by the south koreans. they had planned to send up a satellite on november 29th but postponed. the two koreas are competing to be the top satellite-launching countries. it is opposed by the north. those in pyongyang believe such opposition is caused by what they call the hostile policy of the united states. they insist that the americans change their position and that ask that they launch. anothe

while now since kim jong-un has taken over. i just want to ask him has been any sign that north korea's military and security policy strategy hasn't changed since he is come on board, or reduce it as a continuation of how they act in their approaches under his predecessors? >> well, i think we're still in the wait-and-see stages. there had been, i believe you can take a look at the last number of months. there have been i think a number of signs that might lead you to believe that the new regime leadership is going to take a more, i would say rational approach to how to deal with their own economy and how they deal with their own people, and how they deal internationally. and so i think generally there's been a feeling that there might be some hope there. however, now we are approaching, once again, a potential violation of a u.n. security council resolution, and we encourage the leadership in north korea to consider what they are doing here and implications in the overall security environment on the korean peninsula, as well as destination. >> anything new? we been hearing some rumbl
